SAN DIEGO -- The Padres Clayton Richard is a different pitcher in this go round in San Diego.Richard proved that by blanking Colorado for seven innings as San Diego routed the Rockies, 14-1 on Thursday night.I think Im smarter and Im taking things easier, Richard said. I have an understanding that on the mound doing less is more. It creates better stuff and more consistency.After two earlier stints with the Padres, Richard was claimed off waivers when released by the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 3. It was his second impressive start since Aug. 27, when he blanked the Miami Marlins over seven innings in a win.Richard missed the 2014 season after undergoing a left shoulder operation. Hes bounced around since, but it appears hes bounced all the way back.You bet on the person and what he has done in the past, Padres manager Andy Green said. As he gets distance from his surgery hes returning to form. Hes one of those guys that works harder than everybody and Ive learned not to count those types of people out.Richard (2-3) was sharp as he scattered six hits, walked two and had eight strikeouts.I think consistently it was about being down in the zone and throwing strikes,Hes doing so with a different arm slot, dropping down more three-quarter on his release.Instead of staying up top Ive kind of let the arm goes where it wants to, Richard said. Im just relaxed and not worrying about getting on top on the ball.Ryan Schimpf hit a three-run homer and tied a career-high with four RBI to lead the offensive outburst.Schimpf, a rookie second baseman, hit his 18th home run of the season, all coming since July 1.Keith Hessler and Brandon Morrow pitched the final two innings. Cristhian Adames spoiled the shutout with a one-out homer in the ninth off Morrow.Every position player in the Padres starting lineup had a hit. Travis Jankowski, Yangervis Solarte, Alex Dickerson and Schimpf had two each. Derek Norris added a two-run homer in the eighth.Jeff Hoffman (0-3) lasted 2 2/3 innings but it was hardly all by his own doing. He gave up seven unearned runs, six hits and two walks. It was his shortest stint in his four career starts.`I think its just a matter of command and getting in tough counts, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.San Diego tacked on three runs in the fifth on Richards RBI groundout after German Marquez walked the bases loaded in his major league debut. Jankowski added a two-run single.The Padres dinged Hoffman with a seven-run third, highlighted by Schimpfs three-run blast. It tied a season-high for runs in an inning for the Padres after they sent 11 batters to the plate.San Diego had a little help from Adames as all the runs were unearned.With Luis Sardinas at third, Jon Jays two-out grounder kicked off Adames glove at shortstop for a run-scoring error. Wil Myers, Solarte and Dickerson followed with singles, with the last two bringing in runs.The error didnt mean anything, Hoffman said. That stuff happens. You just gotta go out and make the next pitch and get out of it.Then Schimpf went deep over the fence in center field. Sardinas got on for the second time in the inning with an RBI single for a 7-0 lead.Green said Norris was to undergo an X-ray after taking a foul tip off his right shoulder in the ninth inning.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Reinstated RHP Jason Motte from the DL.

Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. The third day of Indias training camp in Bangalore ahead of their West Indies sojourn was another intense affair, with an emphasis firmly on skill-sets. Offspinner R Ashwin, returning from personal leave, and opener Shikhar Dhawan were primarily in focus, even as the rest of the squad along with a few members of the India A and Karnataka team were also in attendance at the National Cricket Academy.Ashwin, among the first few to come out for training, had a brief conversation with Anil Kumble, his role model, before rolling his arm over to a catching man to loosen his stiff shoulders. He then sent down a string of deliveries at an empty net. Once all systems were go, he began bowling at the batsmen. His variations particularly stoked the interest of everyone present early on, before the attention shifted to Dhawan.The opening batsman started off with a solid session against Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur, the Mumbai pacer, on the centre pitch. Once he was satisfied with his brief stint in the middle, Dhawan came over for throwdowns from batting coach Sanjay Bangar and Raghavendra, the teams throwdown specialist.Shortly into the session, Bangar placed a fourth stump, a few feet outside off, next to where Dhawan was standing. The positioning was such that the stump was within Dhawans eyeline. It seemed as if there was a conscious plan to work on his feet movement and judgement outside off stump to away-going deliveries hurled at a fair clip.The video analyst set up a camera around where Dhawan was batting to record his trigger movements and his stance. After a few deliveries, Dhawan approached Bangar for an opinion on his wrist position while pressing forward. While returning to his mark, he looked at a group of journalists trying to decipher what he was trying to do. Learning the basics, he laughed.It seemed as though the plan was to eliminate his off-side weakness against the away-going delivery. As a batsman, sometimes, your head position generally gives you a clear indication of where your off stump is, Amol Muzumdar, the former Mumbai batsman and highest-capped Ranji Trophy cricketer, explained to ESPNcricinfo. Generally, with a good stance, me being a right-hander, your right eye generally serves as an indication that thats your off stump.The method could act as two things. One is to know where your off stump is, and two, probably the bat, in your backlift, is going a little bit away. Then you get an immediate feedback that your bat is going away, or know where your off stump is.Dhawans method was particularly intriguing, given his travails outside the off stump in Test matches. His general tendency to attack the ball has caused problems, which were exacerbated when India toured England in 2014. Dhawan was either caught behind or in the slips in three out of six innings, before being dropped for the final two Tests. The problem resurfaced in Australia later that year, where Dhawan also struggled against the white ball, which he generally is more comfortable facing. Aakash Chopra, Dhawans former Delhi team-mate, felt it wass a case of a lack of footwork creating doubts in his mind.dddddddddddd Its a combination of, I think, two-three things, he explained. Obviously, his feet dont move, and if your feet dont move, you end up playing away from the body anyway. It gets rewarded in the shorter formats, so you dont even think there is any need to change. And even though he likes to drive, when the ball is really full, he is on to his front foot and drives it well. But he gets stuck on the crease to anything that is in the in-between length. And even while his intention is to play from the crease, he doesnt really go onto the back foot, and instead just stays there and flashes outside off.Could it be an issue with his stance, perhaps? Chopra didnt think so. Its not that its crouched or its too wide. Its not too wide, neither too narrow in terms of his feet positioning, so its not that hes falling over, he observed. But he definitely has to get into the habit of leaving balls outside off. T20 cricket and limited-overs cricket tell you to play away from the body; playing away from the body rewards you because if you get too close, you get cramped (for room).Questions of whether Dhawan is temperamentally suited for Test cricket have been asked frequently, given the left-handers innate desire to attack. Muzumdar, however, felt that such batsmen were needed in a Test team. Not everyone is cut out like M Vijay, who takes his time and leaves the ball outside off stump very well, which in the last 24 months he has been doing superbly for India, he said. KL Rahul, again, is solid in defence, so is someone like Pujara. So there is place for an attacking player who would take on the opposition. I think he is cut out for international cricket. Weve seen his success and I think he is temperamentally built for international cricket.Dhawans supreme confidence in his ability has been known right from his domestic days and is one of the distinct aspects of his game. Has that confidence, perhaps, translated to excessive flamboyance in Test cricket?It could happen, there is no denying that, Muzumdar said. Again, its upto the high-performance athlete who would use that confidence to his own benefit. I think it depends, sometimes you may feel its overconfidence, but thats the way he has played cricket ever since he announced himself against Australia at Mohali with that swashbuckling hundred in his debut match. Confidence is a double-edged sword.But when that confidence works in his favour and he is at ease with himself and his surroundings, Dhawans batting makes for one of the most visceral joys in cricket. At the nets, he nailed a lovely straight drive that elicited a hurried leap from Bangar. Dhawan walked over to the coach and the two shared a laugh and patted each other on the back. Pleased with himself, a sprightly Dhawan strutted back to his crease humming a tune or two before gearing up to face the next ball. All seemed well with his world.
